How do I resize an image in my email?

The ideal solution is to resize it prior to importing it. The main reason for this is because some platforms (notoriously Outlook) don't respect the 'resize' parameters in emails, so even if you reduce the size in the email editor, it will render in its full form within the inbox instead of the adjusted size.
When you add the image to your email, double-click the image and you'll see the resize function. Be sure the tiny lock icon to the right of the width/height is locked to keep the aspect ratio on. Play around with the sizing to find the right width/height. Find what works best for you.
Then you can use an online tool such as Pixlr. In Pixlr:
  • Scroll down a bit and select the Express option.
  • Import your image (either URL or select from your computer).
  • At the bottom you can select the Resize option. It defaults to keep the aspect ratio, so you can change the width to whatever you decided in the step above.
  • Don't rely on how it looks on Pixlr. It may look small, but it scales down the size in its editor; within the email however, it will render in full form.
Once this image has been saved, import this newly adjusted image into the Image & Doc library, and add that to your email. It will now render in the new size, and regardless of the recipient's inbox manager.
